    Excerpt from The Centenary of Alpha of New York of Phi Beta Kappa: Celebrated at Union College June 11 and 12, 1917

    In 1779 the Chapter determined to form subsidiary or~ ganizations, although their manner of forming them seems peculiar. They did not at first undertake to form chapters, or branches, as they called them, in other colleges, but in other towns in Virginia, and designated these chapters as Beta, Gamma, Delta, and so on. Whether this was actually done or not does not appear, but it furnished a precedent that was extremely important, inasmuch as it was the actual salvation of the society. For at that time at William and Mary there was a young man named Elisha Parmelee, who had been at both Harvard and Yale, but who had come South for his health and had taken up his studies at William and Mary. Observing this move to form new chapters, he sug gested that branches be formed not simply in Virginia, but also in the neighboring states. Acting on his suggestion the society determined, and he was commissioned, to form chap ters at Yale and Harvard called respectively the Alpha of Connecticut and 'the Alpha of Massachusetts Bay. These were established respectively in 1780 and 1781. In all essential regards they were like the parent chapter, except that almost from the beginning the membership in them was confined to the senior class, with a few from the junior class.
